I wanted to draw some bird to practice. I decided to make the falcon which holds the Slavonic sungod Swarog (in the form of Sun with various sun symbols) and leads him back to the Swarga (the Slavonc heaven). The falcon helps Swarog because he is weakened by bad spirit forces.

:-) Pavel Kovalančík replies: "Hi Taffy, Thank you for your comment again. Yeah, if you have a concept or a though in your head everything is easier. I wanted to draw some bird which holds the sun symbol and it was finnished this way and I am glad for it 1 Maybe the feathers are not perfect but the picture still looks good in my opinion."
